Photo Hunt: Garbage

I must have had a great Girl Scout leader as a child. I remember her getting lots of empty 5-gallon ice cream tubs from Baskin-Robbins. We rolled up lots of colorful pages of Life Magazine ads into tightly rolled pencil-thin straws, gluing them shut. We cut them all the height of the ice cream container, glued them on, and ended up with a colorful waste basket. It looked like a round version of this:


She was ahead of her time, as this was WAY before recycling. So many "green" products are now made of recycled materials. Here are a couple of items made from GARBAGE.

Here is another creative waste basket:


Or how about a candy wrapper purse?


Unfortunately, here is some garbage in the Tiber River.
